This is a working portfolio that provides a glance at a small sample of the work that I completed during the Fall 2012 semester at Parsons while pursuing a Certificate in Architecture and Interior Design.

I. Personal Statement II. Sketches Freehand pencil sketches III. Hand DraftingI surveyed and redesigned a Parsons classroom as a one bedroom apartment. The openness between the kitchen, living room and dining room provides a large space to entertain while maintaining creative boundaries between areas. Bedroom andwalk-in closet are separated from the rest of the apartment to maintain a sense of coziness in the private apartment space. IV. Space PlanningGiven the outer shell of a penthouse apartment on Central Park West, I designed a showroom for a fashion designer with an attached apartment with an entrance hidden from clients andother employees of the company. The showroom design is based on an upscale subway idea, with a grey color scheme injected with pops of bright color and curving walls which inspire movement and flow throughout the space. The designer’sapartment is inspired by the four elements and the creation ofa bridge between natural materials and city style. The space on the whole focuses on the separation of work and play, the use of natural materials in an urban setting and creating clean and active architectural lines in order to direct viewers as they experience both spaces.
